Elizabeth B's insight:

Lyrics Training is a really neat site that allows users to search music videos for L2  (six languages are available). You choose your skills level, then as the music video plays, you type missing words into the lyrics that appear below the video. The site records your stats. What a motivating and fun way to increase fluency, spelling, and listening skills.

10 Tech Tools for Teacher Training Courses

10 Tech Tools for Teacher Training Courses | Professional Interest | Scoop.it
I hope you have found something interesting here and this article makes you think a little more about how you deliver teacher training in general as the use of these tools isn't just restricted to tech training. They could be integrated into the delivery of any language or teacher training course and to some extent I feel that until tech tools are integrated into mainstream teacher training we aren't going to get the quality and quantity of digitally literate teachers that we need to really provide a 21st century learning environment for our students.

Elizabeth B's curator insight, November 2, 2013 2:38 PM

Really useful article about MALL (mobile assisted language learning) and web2.0 tools that lists input, interaction, and feedback as three primary benefits of these technologies, along with fostering authenticity, reducing anxiety, increasing motivation, providing opportunities, enhancing ownership, greater flexibility, and new mechanisms for meaningful interaction. Detailed discussion and examination of types of blogging for L2. Highlights learner autonomy as an important component of L2, which hadn’t occurred to me before, identifying a need for the learner to “determine the learning objectives, define the content, and progression of learning, and select methods and techniques to be used.” This sounds like student-driven learning to the max. Autonomous learners are “flexible, persistent and responsible, venturesome and creative, independent and self-sufficient, and curious, open and motivated”.  This is the type of learner we need to be creating in all education to prepare students for the future. I will have to look more into specifically fostering autonomy.
